ORIGINAL JOHN LENNON SIGNED PERSONAL CHECK WITH HISTORIC FINE ART PHOTOGRAPH

Regular price $18,695.00 Sale

VERY RARE Hand signed check from John Lennon payable to himself.

As Beatles collectors are well aware, the Lennon signed checks one typically come across are those issued in relation to ' Apple Records ' or  ' Lennon Productions ' by two British institutions: National Westminster Bank Limited and District Bank Limited. Nowhere on them is Lennon's full name printed out by the Issuer to signify a personal account.

This is the only known example of a Lennon singular personal account signed check in existence.
 
John Lennon's signature has been authenticated by PSA DNA 
and accorded a grade level of 9 - ' Mint - superb condition autograph '.
Framed with Edition #29/250 of the famous Bob Gruen photograph - John Lennon on Rooftop, NYC ' August 29, 1974. Hand signed by the photographer, Bob Gruen.

After taking portrait photos of John Lennon's face on the roof of Lennon's New York apartment, photographer Bob Gruen decided to take more photos for publicity. He had given John a NYC T-shirt a year earlier and with the skyline all around he asked John if he still had it as this would be the perfect place to wear it. John went and put it on to make this now iconic photo.
